Childhood and youth

Alexander Gorchilin was born on August 3, 1992 in Moscow. None of the family of Alexander - and he was raised by his mother, grandmother, grandfather and stepfather, has nothing to do with the theater or cinema. Nevertheless, the boy from an early age aspired to the stage - in his own words, because of the internal complexes. In an interview, the artist admitted that he could not communicate with people the way he would like, and on the stage of the theater “some magic things happen to him” - everything is possible here and there are no barriers.

Alexander began to comprehend the basics of acting at the Children's Musical Theater of a young actor. In the early 2000s, Gorchilin appeared in an advertisement for Skittles, and also received the role of the silent boy Sasha Grigoryev (as well as his friend Romashov) in the famous musical Nord-Ost (directed by Alexey Ivaschenko and George Vasiliev). Also in 2006-2007, the teenager starred in several episodes of "Jumble".

In 2014, the actors of the Gogol Center, led by a mentor, visited an expedition to the Yaroslavl Region, where they studied the poem together with the villagers and recorded unique monologues during communication. Alexander Gorchilin, along with cameraman Ksenia Sereda, recorded every second of this trip, and later released the documentary “# COMUNARIZE GOOD”.

But the real fame fell on Gorchilin after he was approved for the role of Zhenya Zakharov, the young man of the athlete Zhenya Vasnetsova in the super-popular comedy series "Daddy's Daughters" on STS. The hero of Alexander appeared from 4 to 7 (in 2008), and then in the 11th season of the series (in 2009).

Alexander Gorchilin about filming in the movie "Summer"

In general, any shooting with Kirill Semenovich is a wonderful pioneer camp. Not like working on a play where Moscow still sets the rhythm. And here we all leave, we are together all the time - and Kirill Semenovich blossoms like a flower. Everyone was great at the Pupil, too, the point is not in the material. But yes, in “Summer” there are also musical numbers, and this time ... we did it all with great pleasure.

Alexander Gorchilin about his generation

The actor is 26 years old, here is what he says about his generation:

We are burdened with knowledge, we have much more opportunities, and therefore the demand is greater. We are constantly saved by irony. And we were not able to say something new. For some time I thought that Purulent would be the person who could, watched him - but no. I have a suspicion that the next generation will be able to. Those who are 15 or less now. We are very reflective, some injured, but they do not like to reflect. They are tough. Authorities are they e ** li.
